Costa Rica News – A new app allows dog owners to have their pet’s information handy.
It’s called ACAN Costa Rica and can be downloaded for free for iOS and Android. The app will make life easier for you and your dog. Aside from having the most important information at your fingertips, in the case of loss it can easily be found using the app.
This app was recently released by the Canine Federation of Costa Rica.
It works as a mirror of the canine record microchip, which is implanted in dogs with their info and that of their owner.
The microchip gives the pet a unique 18 digit number. Simply entering the last 5 digits of the 18 in the animal’s ID number allows access to the data of the animal. This can be used by anyone who finds a lost dog.
You just take it to a vet, shelter or rescue center to have the microchip read and enter the number to find the owner’s contact info.
You can also contact ACAN directly at 7010-0575 or through www.acancostarica.org.
